The term 'CZAR', used extensively by the Obama Administration is a curious word in the AMERICAN lexicon. Most of us think of the Romanoff family (Czar of Russia) at the time of the Russian Revolution in 1917... by the way... if you are a product of public school outcome based education.... it didn't turn out so well for the CZAR and his family. They were marched into a woods by Lenin's henchmen, slaughtered and their bodies burned... umm.... not so good for the CZAR!
Anyway... the word 'CZAR' comes from the word 'Caesar' and is defined as "one having great power". Between you and me... the term 'CZAR' has never really been associated with a positive image here in the United States of America. It sounds funny, foreign, almost outdated and autocratic. So why does Obama use the term 'CZAR'.... BECAUSE 'DICTATOR' IS EVEN LESS ACCEPTABLE!!!
The following is a list of already appointed and yet to be appointed CZAR's proposed by the Obama Administration.

So you're saying to yourself...
'I didn't know all these 'CZARS' were appointed.'
'Who the hell are these people?'
'What is this costing us?'
'What do these people make?'
'What authority do they have?'
'Don't we already have a Secretary of State?... a Department of Energy... a FDA Chief... Health and Human Services... Treasury... Interior... Environment... and heads of all the other Federal Departments... so what the hell are those guys doing if there's a CZAR for the same function?
Interestingly enough... the CZAR's salaries are not reported! They have no job descriptions! We don't know anything about their staff or their responsibilities... and all this from the Obama Administration... which claims to be the most transparent and open administration ever! Bullsh*t! Ask yourself this question... What is the Constitutional authority for these CZARs? ANSWER: There is NONE!
Wake up America! It's time for the 2nd American Revolution!
